CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Reds are partnering with Everything But The House (EBTH), the world’s premier online estate sale and secondhand goods marketplace for authenticated items, to auction over 200 pieces of one-of-a-kind items from Reds history past and present.
Items available in the auction include:

A portion of the proceeds from the auction will benefit the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum’s “150th Anniversary Legacy Campaign.” The campaign has been created to celebrate next year’s anniversary of baseball’s first professional team (the 1869 Red Stockings) and to improve the museum’s ability to preserve and showcase Reds history.

“We have a great fan base who collect and cherish Reds-related items and a portion of the proceeds from the auction will go to the Museum’s ongoing efforts to add significant items to its collection and enhance the experience for visitors.”
All items will include a certificate of authenticity from the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum.
